Christine Butler sent a mass email begging for “friends” to endorse her candidacy for chair of the Broward Republican Party. Using a website usually reserved for invitations to parties, Butler asked members of the Broward Republican Executive Committee to “PLEASE ENDORSE ME FOR BREC CHAIR.” Gee, if you’re going to beg at least ask for their vote.
But remember, her patron loves the endorsement mailers. It helps create a sense of momentum and inevitability. Butler is clearly floundering after disastrous performances at the Broward Young Republicans meeting and the Broward Women’s Republican Club luncheon.
Ready for a giggle? Butler’s email says, “I think you would consider me a battle hardened political leader.” RED BROWARD isn’t kidding about that one. She really wrote that.
The good news? The email says the cost of endorsing Butler is “free”. Unless you’re her patron. Then it may cost you another $5,000 bucks.
